Too Many Nymphs


Recommended Posts

My Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches Cockroaches (Gromphadorhina portentosa) just gave birth again, and we might not have enough space in our house to house all the new nymphs. Do any of you want to adopt them as pets, not as feeders?

Where did you get your stock?

Eh, it's kind of a long story. Basically, I went on a "spider walk" coordinated by a group of entomologists, and this one guy was impressed with me and invited me to visit his lab at SFU. He gave me a bunch of adults as a gift, and I guess I took pretty good care of them, because they keep breeding. The first time they did, April 1st 2015, the whole batch died because I'd never encountered nymphs before, but the July 9th, 2015 batch and the little guys from yesterday are doing fine.
